Spirit Island is a beautiful and peaceful spot that has a certain heaviness about it. This is likely due to the heartbreaking First Nations Romeo and Juliette story that occured here. Spirit Island was the meeting place for a young couple that had fallen in love. Like Romeo and Juliette, they were from rival tribes.When this young Juliette's father (the Chief) found out he forbid her from ever returning to the island. It is said that our Romeo, heartbroken still continued to visit the island never knowing what had happened and waiting for his love to return. In fact, he continued to return to the island for the remainder of his life and eventually died here. It is believed that his spirit is still on the island waiting for his Juliette to return. Because of this, Spirit Island is a signficant spiritual location for First Nations people. As such, you cannot walk on Spirit Island. However, you can walk along a short trail on the mainland and take some incredible photos of it.
